The git-annex assistant creates a synchronised folder on each of your OSX and Linux computers, Android devices, removable drives, NAS appliances, and cloud services. The contents of the folder are the same everywhere. It's very easy to use, and has all the power of git and git-annex.


The git-annex assistant comes as part of git-annex. See install to get it installed.

See the release notes for an overview of the status, and upgrade instructions.

The git-annex assistant was crowd funded on Kickstarter. Thanks to all my backers.

I blog about my work on git-annex and the assistant on a daily basis in this blog. Follow along!
